The Architect’s Newspaper, a leading trade publication for architects and designers, is looking for an experienced writer and editor to lead our coverage of products and building materials in print and online. The ideal candidate would be equally interested in both the gritty and glamorous sides of architecture and design, of how buildings are put together inside and out, from roofing to furnishings and everything in between. The products editor would be responsible for compiling and writing product pages, approximately 20 per year, as well as writing two weekly e-newsletters focusing on cutting-edge digital design and building materials, occasional construction-focused articles and developing product supplements with publisher.

The products editor will also represent The Architect’s Newspaper at showroom openings, trade shows, and other industry events, so some travel is required.

Two to three years of editorial experience, including technical writing, and a BA are required. Knowledge of architecture, engineering, and design are recommended, but an ability to learn on the job is required. Experience with wordpress and CMS systems is recommended.
